Getting along through disagreement is never easy. Preserving the freedom to think and learn and grow comes with a cost. But what if the disagreement itself is valuable for us? What if the cost of freedom isn’t what we expect? And how can we all become the kinds of citizens who know how to disagree without it destroying us?

Having Conversations Full of Grace and Seasoned with Salt: Advice to the Christian Debater - Cross Examined - Christian Apologetic Ministry | Frank Turek | Christian Apologetics | Christian Apologetics Speakers

In his letter to the Colossians, the Apostle Paul instructs his readers to “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person,” (Colossians 4:6). I have found this advice to be invaluable in the context of debate, an activity in which many of us in the apologetics community participate.

What to Say to a Pastor Who Wants to Officiate a Gay Wedding

Now I would say that if a pastor asks his board if he can do that, he has given a signal that he is disqualified from his role of leading the sheep into the kingdom of heaven. And so he has put himself in a position of needing church discipline. And his board should follow the principles of Matthew 18 to seek his repentance as gently and patiently as they can. And then if he does not repent of his willingness to bless people’s eternal suicide and thus lead them out of the kingdom of heaven and into destruction, he should be dismissed as a false shepherd from both the pastorate and the church.

It Is Insane to Kill Humans Because of Their Cognitive Abilities

Sam Storms, in his message earlier this year at our Conference for Pastors, painted such a beautiful picture of God and what it means for us to receive glorified bodies in the age to come. I thought my heart was going to burst with joy and anticipation. That same picture also brought to mind not just the wickedness but also the insanity of killing unborn babies with cognitive disabilities or elderly people with dementia.

Science Increasingly Makes the Case for God

In 1966 Time magazine ran a cover story asking: Is God Dead? Many have accepted the cultural narrative that he’s obsolete—that as science progresses, there is less need for a “God” to explain the universe. Yet it turns out that the rumors of God’s death were premature. More amazing is that the relatively recent case for his existence comes from a surprising place—science itself.

“It is Going to Be an Issue” — Supreme Court Argument on Same-Sex Marriage Puts Religious Liberty in the Crosshairs

Verrilli’s answer puts the nation’s religious institutions, including Christian colleges, schools, and seminaries, on notice. The Chief Justice asked the unavoidable question when he asked specifically about campus housing. If a school cannot define its housing policies on the basis of its religious beliefs, then it is denied the ability to operate on the basis of those beliefs. The “big three” issues for religious schools are the freedoms to maintain admission, hiring, and student services on the basis of religious conviction. By asking about student housing, the Chief Justice asked one of the most practical questions involved in student services. The same principles would apply to the admission of students and the hiring of faculty. All three are now directly threatened. The Solicitor General admitted that these liberties will be “accommodated” or not depending on how states define their laws. And the laws of the states would lose relevance the moment the federal government adopts its own law.

When Your Twenties Are Darker Than You Expected

The human body starts dying at age 25. Our twenties slap us with the expiration date of sin’s curse (Genesis 6:3): slowly, in our ligaments; tightly, in our muscle fibers; subtly, checking for bumps; decimally, with a rising BMI. We feel death in our twenties; emotionally and relationally, in ugly and odious ways. Death latches its chain to our frame, slowly pulling us deep into an answer to the question “Death, where is your sting?” (1 Corinthians 15:55). Our twenties bring so many answers to that question — transition, failure, desperation, dependence, accusation, responsibility, moral failure, stagnation, unfulfillment. “Sting” isn’t sufficient. Our twenties can be a dark time.

Yes, Marriage Will Change You

This gem promises a tiara in your forthcoming book, Dorothy. Too many couples go into marriage carrying naive assumptions propagated by Hollywood and romantic fiction that marriage guarantees endless bliss and happily-ever-afters. And too much advice to newlyweds is one-sided optimism and unrealistic aphorisms about human nature. Your faith-based counsel is a refreshing corrective to blind and essentially self-centered day-dreams. Marriage is intentional, committed, and demanding work with no guarantee that the perks will offset the challenges. Good marriages bring deep satisfaction not only in spite of but because of those labors. Indeed, they are fertile ground for miracles. Can't wait to read the book!

Pregnant at Harvard? | Opinion | The Harvard Crimson

And soon after, I fell in love with a boy who was perfect for me—the type of soulmate that everyone dreams of finding at Harvard. He was my intellectual equal and shared both my romance and my quirky sense of humor. And he made me feel crazily and unquestioningly in love. We could spend hours working on problem sets or hours tearing up a dance floor, we finished each other’s jokes, and we could look at each other and know exactly what the other person was thinking. More than that, we understood each other in a way that no one else ever had. He told me he wanted to marry me. The feeling was mutual, and I eventually ended up losing my virginity to him. Like life, relationships aren’t ever perfect. But we were the type of relationship that everyone wanted to have.

WORLD | What’s the matter with evolution? | Casey Luskin | April 25, 2015

This is how it’s supposed to work—in theory. In the real world, however, merely generating a functionally advantageous trait does not guarantee it will persist, or become fixed. For example, what if by chance the white fox trips, breaks a leg, and gets eaten by a predator—never passing on its genes? Random forces or events can prevent a trait from spreading through a population, even if it provides an advantage. These random forces are lumped together under the name “genetic drift.” When biologists run the mathematics of natural selection, they find that unless a trait gives an extremely strong selective advantage, genetic drift will tend to overwhelm the force of selection and prevent adaptations from gaining a foothold in a population.

Heavy Things Become Unexpected Gifts

Heavy things are being carried all over the world, every minute of the day. Whimsy's story is a universal one, and the gospel is about bad things made good and heavy things made light. It’s in the brokenness where the good work happens, at the point of surrender where truth and grace are found. We can be strongest in this vulnerable space, wholly dependent on God. We can be most transformed in the fire, refined by the Spirit. We can be hopeful in the shadows, for therein lies great treasure. Whimsy's heavy things become unexpected gifts, and I believe ours can, too.

Hyper-Headship and the Scandal of Domestic Abuse in the Church

We, the council of elders at Bethlehem Baptist Church, are resolved to root out all forms of domestic abuse (mental, emotional, physical, and sexual) in our midst. This destructive way of relating to a spouse is a satanic distortion of Christ-like male leadership because it defaces the depiction of Christ’s love for his bride. The shepherds of Bethlehem stand at the ready to protect the abused, call abusers to repentance, discipline the unrepentant, and hold up high the stunning picture of how much Christ loves his church.

Our Kids

Putnam argues that the American dream is in crisis because the breakdown of social structure in the lives of the poor denies them equal opportunity. People simply cannot get ahead—cannot make for themselves that humble but sufficient life of quiet dignity and provision called the American dream—in isolation. Where marriages fall apart, or are never formed in the first place; where parents don’t know the wisest ways to raise their children, because it’s never been taught or modeled in their experience; where schools fail to equip students for life; and where the bonds of local community are weak; the rich will thrive but the poor will have no opportunity.

GoFundMe Removes Christian Grandma-Florist Barronelle Stutzman's Fundraising Page; 2nd Christian Business Facing 'Ruin' Removed From Site This Week

"The opponents of freedom have to ruin every aspect of the lives of those who disagree — denying them a living, the ability to feed their families and the opportunity to raise money to pay the so-called 'victims,'" Waggoner asserted. "This type of vindictive, hateful behavior is terrifying. Corporations like Apple, Salesforce, and GoFundMe want to make sure they can live and work consistent with their beliefs about marriage, but then deny that same right to people like Barronelle Stutzman who lovingly served her customer for nearly a decade but simply couldn't participate in the celebration of his same-sex wedding."

2 Ingredients for Leading Ministry Leaders with Mental Illness

It almost sounds like a contradiction of terms “ministry leadership” and “mental illness.” And I suppose in some circles, it is. But for me, where I lead and who I lead for, two ingredients have organically combined to create a mixology that supports these terms. At Church by the Glades, the way I am able to lead with a bipolar diagnosis consists of two ingredients: I have leaders who believe in me yet don't baby me. My lead pastors, Pastor David and Lisa and Raul, our executive pastor (also my sexy Cuban spouse of sixteen years) have been amazing at doing both. Allow me to elaborate on these ingredients.

One Solitary Life

He was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village, where he worked in a carpenter’s shop until he was thirty. Then for three years he was an itinerant preacher. He never wrote a book, never held an office, never went to mmentllege, never visited a big city. He never travelled more than two hundred miles from the place where he was born. He did none of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but himself. He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied him. He was turned over to his enemies and went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing, the only property he had on earth. When he was dead, he was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend … All the armies that have ever marched, all the navies that have ever sailed, all the parliaments that have ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned put together, have not affected the life of mankind on earth, as powerfully as that one solitary life.

Learn Truth and Worship God with New Student Hymnal

We’re using the term “friend” to describe someone who helps and encourages you when you need them. Like a friend, hymns comfort, give hope, and inspire. They help you to confess sin, give thanks, rejoice, and solicit God’s favor. They will come to you in the dark of night or the heat of day, bringing God’s truth and Word to your heart. Who doesn’t need that kind of friend, no matter what age—young or old? Think of Paul and Silas imprisoned in a dungeon. What did they do? Sing hymns. Why do people in nursing homes light up and smile or sometimes weep when old hymns are played and sung? Because an old friend has come to see and sit with them.

Doesn’t Egyptian Chronology Prove Bible Is Unreliable?

Isaiah warned against going down to Egypt for help ( Isaiah 31:1 ). This phrase has come to symbolize a warning not to go to the world for truth. God determines truth. Historians examine fragmentary clues and fill in the gaps based on their presuppositions. Those presuppositions may be biblical or traditional. Accepting traditional Egyptian chronology necessitates rejection of biblical truth. Accepting biblical chronology allows a reconstruction of ancient chronology on a foundation of truth. Viewing the evidence from a biblical framework makes the histories of Egypt and the Old Testament fit together like two sides of a zipper.

Baptist21 is excited to once again host a lunch panel at this year’s SBC where we bring together some of the leading voices in Southern Baptist life to talk openly about these issues.

The Love of Law is Abolished in the Law of Love – John Broadus |

The gospel existed antecedent to the giving of the law, in the promises. (Gal 3:8). In the system of grace the law is abolished only so far as it is mere law, i.e. a position enactment.  The religion of law, as such, is one of fear and bondage (Moses the servant of God); that of grace is one of love, of freedom, of sonship (Christ the son of God).  The love of law is abolished in the law of love.  Rom. 3:20, 8:3, 10:4, 13:10, Gal 3:13, 23.”

Ligonier.org

Although the doctrine of salvation is an important topic of discussion among Christians, there is an alarming amount of disagreement regarding what the Bible actually teaches about salvation. One area of confusion concerns why salvation is necessary at all. Although evangelicals proclaim that we must be saved, very few people specify what it is that we must be saved from. Another area of confusion concerns the way that sinners receive salvation. Throughout church history, the biblical doctrine of salvation by faith alone has often been trivialized and marginalized by efforts to promote salvation through human effort. Confusion also exists about whether people receive salvation through an independent act of their own will or as a result of the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson will address these issues and others, showing that salvation is a gift from God and that fallen human beings can inherit it only after experiencing the new birth.

God, Why This Broken World Like Ours?

This is Romans 8:18-21: “The sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing to the glory that will be revealed to us. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For [here it comes] the creation was subjected to futility [That is what we are seeing in Nepal. That is what we are seeing in the loss of eyesight, the loss of ears and cancer. The creation was subjected to futility] not willingly. [In other words, the creation didn’t say: Oh, curse me, God. Not willingly,] but because of him who subjected it.”

Have We Lost the Message of the New Testament? - Apologetics Guy

Maybe you’ve got a friend or a co-worker who tends to be pretty skeptical of the Bible right from the get-go. For many like them, the issues surrounding the Bible can make it tough to read it for themselves and give it a fair hearing. For example, people who saw Bart Ehrman on the Cobert Report or read his books might come away doubting that the text of the New Testament is still intact after all these years.

Rand Paul Blames Baltimore Violence on 'Breakdown of Family Structure,' 'Lack of Fathers'

"It's something we talk about not in the immediate aftermath, but over time," Paul said. "The breakdown of the family structure, the lack of fathers, the lack of sort of a moral code in our society. This isn't just a racial thing. It goes across racial boundaries. But we do have problems in our country, and you see that we're close to the tipping point — closer to the tipping point than many [think]."

Broken and Burdened in Baltimore

I’ve also been saddened as I recognized a common theme in some of the tweets and posts shared through social media by some in the evangelical Christian community. I’m particularly concerned with references to rioters as “thugs” or “animals.” Even President Obama denounced the “criminals and thugs who tore up” Baltimore. Whether you advocate protest or believe it’s more harmful than beneficial, I want to suggest that there should be absolutely no room for this sort of labeling, as harmful and misguided as the rioters’ actions may be. The term “thug” gets casually thrown around during these situations—particularly when African American youth are involved—yet somehow the word gets lost when students destroy their campus by setting fires or jumping on cars after a national championship victory or loss. That’s just kids being kids. I believe we need to ask deeper questions why the word is used in one setting but not another.

Renewing Your Mind | An Honorable Offering | April 30, 2015

Although the majesty and transcendence of God accounts greatly for the austere simplicity that has historically characterized Reformed worship, so too did Calvin’s sober estimate of the Bible’s authority. Following Calvin, the Reformed churches have taught that believers may worship God only as He has instructed us to worship Him through His Word. This idea is sometimes called the “Regulative Principle of Worship,” and it further distinguishes Reformed churches from Lutherans and Anglicans. The Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF) summarizes this doctrine well in chapter twenty-one: “The acceptable way of worshiping the true God is instituted by himself, and so limited by his own revealed will, that he may not be worshiped according to the imaginations and devices of men, or the suggestions of Satan, under any visible representation, or any other way not prescribed in Holy Scripture.” Consequently, while Lutherans and Anglicans will use Scripture as a negative reference for worship — they will not do anything that Scripture forbids — Reformed Christians have historically looked to Scripture for positive warrant — they will only do what Scripture commands explicitly or by good and necessary consequence.

What to Do When Wrestling With Doubt

I am the infant tossed about by the waves that Paul talks about in Ephesians, never knowing quite what I believe. I grew up a believer, but in graduate school, I began to openly confront the serious doubts I'd long had. Long story short, I walked away from my faith for a few years. I've found my way back to Christianity, but I still often feel like I can't seem to suppress all my questions and skepticism. My desire is to totally commit to Christianity, to know God and to live for Jesus, but I feel like my mind never has resolution. How do I go about building a firm foundation of faith?

Atheist Michael Shermer tries to rationally ground morality in debate with Frank Turek

So, when Shermer tries to shame Christians for behaviors in other times and places which our society here and now disagrees with, what he really means is “morality, objectively speaking, is nonsense, but I will use your moral sense that comes from your non-atheistic worldview to shame you, so that you won’t have the confidence to judge me for my immoral behavior”. And we need to get used to understanding this about atheists. Morality is nonsense to them, and their real goal is to get you off their back for their hedonism. For atheists, morality is just complying with arbitrary social customs which vary by time and place. There is nothing more to it than aping their neighbors (at least when their neighbors are watching). And they would have aped slave-owners, widow-burners and Nazi prison guards too, if they lived in that time and place. And shouted at Christians for disagreeing with them, just like Shermer did about gay marriage.

45
Leithart, Wilson, and What is this "Church" Thing Anyway?

Leithart’s use of the indicative-imperative framework, while salutary, left certain ambiguities of its own that, unlike Wilson’s, only deepened as the discussion went on (indeed, similar ambiguities were evident in his remarks at “Future of Protestantism” last year). For the claim that the church is actually at this present day one body on earth—Protestants, Catholics, and Orthodox, crazy episcopalians and crazy backwoods Baptists—it itself rather a Protestant claim. It is not one that the Catholic Church would have made; even after Vatican II, Protestant communions are not really deemed to be part of the one church, so much as somehow hanging on to Christ by the hem of his garment, by some special dispensation of good favor. In other words, to talk this way is to suggest that it is not institutional unity that is particularly essential, since the church is undeniably institutionally fractured at present. What Leithart seems to be calling us to, rather, is to a unity of spirit, of mutual charity and respect, rather than making more of our denominational differences than we ought. Of course, this does not just mean warm fuzzy feelings—it means also seeking to manifest that unity credally, liturgically, and in common works of ministry, as Leithart elaborated in response to a later question by Chris Schlect.

The Christians Who Annoy Us Are the Christians We Need Most

To this end, Hansen proposes that Christians learn from believers who make them uncomfortable, because the ones who annoy us are likely the ones we need most. Instead of trying to be well-rounded, we should settle for being well-surrounded. If we can’t embody all the strengths of every Christian tribe, we can at least associate with brothers and sisters who have what we lack (and lack what we have).

It probably would not be a good idea for people to underestimate me."

NASA Spacecraft Crashes on Mercury After 11-Year Mission

After almost 11 years in space and four years of orbiting Mercury, NASA’s Messenger spacecraft (which stands for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and Ranging) has run out of fuel and crashed onto the surface of the planet. Messenger is estimated to have traveled somewhere around 5 billion miles during its time in space—which makes the numbers on your run-down car's odometer seem suddenly much less impressive. After the planet’s gravity pulled the vehicle out of orbit, it slammed into Mercury’s surface at 8,750 mph, creating a small crater. Messenger's mission to Mercury began in 2004, and the spacecraft settled into orbit in 2011. It has since completed more than 4,000 orbits of the planet and sent back volumes of data about Mercury back to scientists on Earth. Little was known about the planet before the mission. NASA scientists and experts hosted a live-stream of the crash to celebrate the end of Messenger's mission and explain some of the spacecraft's discoveries—you can re-watch it here ...

The Search for Meaning: Science & God

Some modern-day theories seem to pit science against God, but why? Do you have to choose or can you intellectually believe in both? In Science & God, author and social critic Os Guinness engages Oxford University Professor of Mathematics John Lennox in a conversation that explores this tension, with calculations that subtract neither God nor science. Lennox looks at both historical and contemporary explanations of the universe, and he uses debate-tested conclusions and simple illustrations to clarify the real issues of this controversy.
